ISBN: 9781526629760 (hbk.) :
A woman known for her viral social media posts travels the world speaking to her adoring fans, her entire existence overwhelmed by the Internet - or what she terms 'the portal'. Are we in hell? the people of the portal ask themselves. Are we all just going to keep doing this until we die? Suddenly, two texts from her mother pierce the fray: 'Something has gone wrong,' and 'How soon can you get here?' As real life and its stakes collide with the increasing absurdity of the portal, the woman confronts a world that seems to contain both an abundance of proof that there is goodness, empathy and justice in the universe, and a deluge of evidence to the contrary.

Not for me. I couldn't get past about page 20 which is very unusual for me as I will read almost anything. Felt manic and bitty.
